Wool and silk are combined in this single ply yarn. Muted colors are formed by dying the wool and silk roving together, allowing for the natural differences at which wool and silk absorb dye.
Don't let the 'single ply' turn you off. Schoppel Wolle has a patented technique that just slightly felts the yarn, creating a single ply that resists the normal pilling associated with it, as well as enhances stitch definition.
